MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

The United States is a big country, but every single state had something in common Thursday morning.

Despite covering 3.8 million square miles, each state in America had snow on the ground.

Tennessee, Mississippi, and Arkansas were recovering from the second straight winter storm Thursday--with businesses getting back into the swing of things in west Tennessee and north Mississippi.

It's not unusual for the Mid-South to have snow on the ground this time of year. In fact, the area is just slightly above average when it comes to seasonal snowfall totals.

However, even typically tropical states were unable to avoid the snow. Tallahassee, Florida, had .1 inch of snow on the ground Thursday morning.
